Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Fusing a single image, part of Up and Running with Photomatix Pro.
If you only have a single RAW file, you could fuse that.…Because the RAW file can be developed multiple ways.…Remember the RAW file has incredible latitude and you…could essentially under and over expose the single image.…Let's do that here for an image that has a…single exposure and then, I'll take a multiple bracket exposure.…And we can compare the methods and how they do.…I'm going to open up a single image here and let's choose the option to…Enable Exposure Fusion.…It'll go through the RAW file and open that up a couple of ways.…
This is going to essentially covert the RAW…file multiple times and then blend those together.…Essentially creating a series of bracketed images from a single RAW file.…Okay, with the Exposure Fusion here Note, it took the single image…and I still have the same choices of how I blend these.…It's not…quite the same as having multiple images.…But I could back off the strength a bit, adjust and refine the brightness.…And in this case, I'm going to play with the…localized contrast so that it's there but not too strong.…
